I was chatting to a mate of mine the night before Christmas Eve, went to the pub on boxing day to find out he had gone home and died, he was found on Christmas day. Life is too short.

edit. Just seen that I started this thread, will have to go back and re read to find out why.

Coming up to a milestone birthday in March. Outlived both parents age wise and seen a lot of friends die in the last few years. I'm scared sometimes, other times I think it may just be facing realism when you get news you ain't got long. I,d love to go peacefully with my kids present but I'll be pissed about missing my funeral. Could be a good bash.
Like Al, I fear having a long and/or painful exit.

I watched my mother for of cancer and it reinforced my belief in assisted dying. Watching someone for pumped full of morphine whilst people wait, making small talk underlined the pointlessness of those last few days. Eventually she drowned from fluid from an infection in her lungs.

It's ducking ridiculous and.absurd that we.would consider letting.an animal for like that to be.cruel, but accept that it's right for a person.

Had two best mates since leaving school, one passed away at 43 (10 years ago) from MS and the other found out last week he has Parkinsons at 53. Not so much making me think of death but what I can do with the rest of my life? Sadly still need the income from working for a few years yet.

I'm rambling.

Well my Mother in Law died at 3:00am this morning, and your post 100% covers exactly what I was coming on here to write (including the lungs and morphine comments).

To have to watch a very proud and dignified lady go though what she has for the last few years culminating in the horror of the last 5 days is beyond civilized.

I have watched two people close to me pass now in almost identical sequence of events. Both ending when they were pumped full of morphine (whether they needed it or not)... there is no way back from this, and I'm more than OK with that. Anyone who thinks this is not a form of euthanasia is being very naive or not experienced first hand. Again in my mind both should have received these life ending doses 6 months earlier.

As a builder/handyman you might appreciate this.

Lay a tape measure out on the ground and take a look at the numbers. Note where your current age is (i.e. 65 inches) and then note where 80 inches is.

It really puts things into perspective.

Condolences to you.

My mother died of cancer and after the initial shock of the relapse it was drawn out over the next few weeks but the doctors did say it was terminal. I hate to say it but it did feel like a relief at the end. It happened in the dead of night eventually, around 2.45am. I was dozing off and til this day do not know why but got a sudden jolt awake and was instantly alert in time to see the breathing become more shallow and eventually stop, leaving just the hissing of the oxygen in the room. Strange what one remembers of the time.

Again... thank you for the post... and again I can relate.

Seems to be a common thread here.

My MiL just ran out of steam... she was 102. No cancer or heart issues, just worn out.

Condolences to you and your family Hedgehog. It’s never easy no matter how old or expected the passing is in the end.

Totally agree on the euthanasia front. Over the years the deaths of my pets being ‘put to sleep’ have been so much more dignified and felt more honourable than the long painful drawn out deaths of some of the people I’ve known.

My dad got diagnosed with Alzheimer’s a few years back. It ravaged his sensibilities very quickly and he didn’t know who his family were within months. It was seven long feckin hard years of watching a proud man basically die in slow motion. Totally undignified and totally painful and a heavy grind for his loved ones. I know for a fact that he wouldn’t have wanted to go like that and if there was an option of euthanasia he would’ve definitely have chosen that.

Sorry for your loss Hedghog.

I don't tend to think about death too much, probably because I hope at almost 35 I have a good few years left in me yet, however this year I have had a really crap one health wise where at one point it was looking like I could have something quite seriously wrong with me, but thankfully it turned out it wasn't after months and months of tests and waiting around for results.

Do I want to die? No! But when my time comes I will embrace it, I look to the positive that I might actually get to see loved ones again. My Mum passed away 16 years ago due to a brain haemorrhage after surgery to remove a brain tumour. Something slightly surreal about swwing someone hooked up to a machine, but basically dead it for what the machine was doing. My Dad passed away 2 years ago almost, I never made it to the hospital in time and that is something that is going to stick with me forever unfortunately. And the youngest of my sisters dies from lupus at just 39.

When it happens it happens, no real point worrying about it from my perspective.

Had a few lucky escapes over the years so I'm expecting a slow painful one to put the ying back in the yang. Death itself doesn't worry me , I just don't want my family to have to.see it . Going in my sleep after a palace win would be ideal .
